Man, Finland looked pitiful in the first quarter today.
I was stuck in the waiting room at MedGroup (long story) and watching the first quarter of the US-Finland Olympic hockey game. First, the US seemed to score on Finland pretty much at will, while Finland was having real problems holding onto the puck and passing (basically, their puck handling was just awful).
Finland only had FOUR shots on goal in the first quarter (none of which went in.) That’s pretty pitiful for a team that’s been pretty dominant up to this point. Didn’t look as though things were going to be any better by the beginning of the second period — although I left at that point, so I don’t know how it is now.
Canada v. Slovakia: Laissez que la meilleure équipe à gagner !
